The Biggest News from the Bethesda E3 Press Conference


To kick off Bethesda's E3 conference, the company has announced that both Doom and Fallout 4 are going to be all VR-ified.

Other important announcements during EA Play 2017 included a new title from Hazelight called "A Way Out", which is described as a co-op prison break game that can be played using a split-screen.

The second issue with Fallout 4 VR (and VR in general) is locomotion; how are VR gamers supposed to traverse the huge, post-apocalyptic open world?

The Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus reveal trailer began with what seemed to be footage from a vintage film, featuring a large quadruped robot named Liesel. Fittingly enough, Bethesda also confirmed that the horror game will release on October 13th.

The Evil Within 2 Announced, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikamii is making another game in the series. Basically, you're playing as Robocop shortly before the events of the base Doom game.

Even if they're not ready to make the virtual reality leap yet, I'm sure longtime Doom fans appreciate the addition of the "F" in Doom VFR. We got a cool Wolfenstein trailer, but for the most part, nothing new was shown beyond Doom VR which looked, okay. This could create a new gameplay experience for the now two year old game.

Meanwhile, Microsoft unveiled some of their highly anticipated games including "Assassin's Creed Origins" which will be about an Egyptian magus.

Elder Scrolls Legends, the card game set in the elder scrolls universe, presented it's brand new expansion Heroes of Skyrim, released on June 29th this year. Disjointed it may be, but the opening is probably the best live-action trailer bit I've ever seen, if only for its ludicrous premise. Speaking of the Skyrim bounce, Link in Skyrim Switch just sold thousands more Amiibo for Nintendo. Creep faction +10. There's not much info about the game as yet, but with 2014's Evil Within being such a smash hit, no doubt a lot of people will be excited for this one. It also promises a completely new experience that requires no previous Dishonored knowledge or experience.
